Remote working and the benefits of coworking spaces

The pandemic has significantly changed the way we work. Working from anywhere in the world has never been more accepted or easy, with the rise of communication platforms built for remote working, flexible working hours and hybrid work models. As part of a remote working model, coworking spaces are being favoured and utilised by more and more organisations than ever before.

Benefits of co-working spaces for remote workers

Coworking spaces are one of the best alternatives to working from home for those who are remote working, and offer a multitude of benefits. They are also a great way to maintain a routine and stability while travelling if you’re working remotely in another city or another country.

Sometimes those who are remote working complain about feeling isolated or lonely. Coworking spaces offer the benefit of working remotely alongside others who do the same, in an inspirational office environment with added advantages of networking opportunities, access to events and innovative design.

WeWork has a coworking space community manager at all our workspace locations who are dedicated to ensuring your coworking experience is first-rate and that you’re getting the most out of your coworking space benefits. They will send community newsletters that detail new members joining the space, upcoming events, and opportunities to give feedback about what you’d like to see. 

Another benefit of coworking spaces is the variety of environments they provide. Switching surroundings can re-energise us and spark inspiration. WeWork’s coworking spaces in Hong Kong have been specifically designed with wellness and games rooms, outdoor decks and sky gardens, social kitchens, high-top tables, hot desks, quiet nooks for privacy and focus, open soft seating areas reminiscent of a home living room, and conference rooms for both formal and informal meetings. 

What’s even better is that you can bring your furry friend to WeWork’s workplaces as they have a pet-friendly policy and enjoy alfresco outdoor areas together, along with other innovative spaces to meet the needs of all those who are remote working. 

Coworking spaces also benefit your wallet, offering cost-savings and added flexibility. Whether you’re a solo freelancer or start-up looking for a drop-in space when and where you need it, or an established team seeking a dedicated desk or private office, coworking offers cost-saving solutions where you only pay for the space you need and nothing more. WeWork offers pay-as-you-go day passes or all-access memberships that enable members to work from any of their Hong Kong office locations for extra convenience. These flexible agreements mean you can scale at your own pace, without the pressure or rigidity of long-term traditional leases. 

Hong Kong has witnessed high levels of growth in the co-working sector

According to UK-based Circle Loop 2021 research on the co-working sector, Hong Kong has been ranked as the 3rd best city for coworking. The Asian business hub boasts 166 co-working spaces to choose from, based on consumer demand. Hong Kong is one of the more stable flexible workspace markets year-on-year. With Hong Kong relaxing its covid restrictions and removing quarantine measures for travellers, demand for flexible coworking spaces increased by 15% between Q4 2021 and Q1 2022. 

According to a report by the Instant Group in June 2022, demand for smaller space office requirements and hot desks has shot up since the pandemic in response to many companies looking to downsize their real estate portfolio due to new hybrid and agile ways of working.
